In this clip recently released by Walt Disney Studios, Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) is reunited with his father, decades after Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) has disappeared. Also shown during ‘TRON Night,’ it takes place shortly after Quorra delivers Sam from the game grid. Although there is quite a bit of footage between the two clips, this one jumps to the point where the two actually connect after being apart for so many years which have taken their toll hard on Kevin.
Christina Milian, Ashley Benson and Chad Michael Murray star in ABC Family’s new holiday movie, “Christmas Cupid,” premiering during ABC Family’s annual 25 Days of Christmas on Sunday, December 12, at 8:00PM ET/PT.

On its official site to garner Oscar attention, Walt Disney Studios has recently begun to promote several of its films from 2010 including Alice in Wonderland, Toy Story 3 / Day & Night, Secretariat, Tangled and TRON: Legacy. Filled with behind-the-scenes photos, videos and more, there are also a few gems that have yet to have been formally introduced to the public at large which includes Daft’s Punk original score for TRON: Legacy, ‘I See The Light‘ performed by Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi from Disney’s Tangled and even the screenplay to Toy Story 3.
Now, now, we all knew this day was coming. Here we get our first look at one of the key promotional tie-ins for Disney’s Tangled, that for Pantene’s line of hair care products. Although essentially a rather eclectic and frenetic compilation of snippets from the film, there is one slight element of new animation created solely for this advertisement.
Disney’s Tangled stars the voice talents of Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi, Donna Murphy and many more and opens nationwide on November 24. For more information on the film including featurettes, concept art, character art, fun facts, photos of the meet & greet characters at Walt Disney World and Disneyland and more, follow this bookmark.
We first told you about the new line of singing, articulated Disney Princess dolls coming from Disney Store this holiday season back when they were first shared with us in June. Featuring the vocal talents of their respective original performers (or official current when original not available), the 17″ dolls belt out their iconic songs a capella in 15 second segments. Now through YouTube, someone has leaked the Rapunzel doll from Disney’s Tangled in which Mandy Moore performs ‘When Will My Life Begin?’
Walt Disney Animation Studios has just released the following video Q&A with Disney’s Tangled directors Nathan Greno and Byron Howard in which the pair discuss the attraction of one of the film’s stars, Flynn Rider (as voiced by Zachary Levi). Although there doesn’t appear to be much in the way of new footage, the directors talk about the infamous ‘hot guy game’ which helped develop Flynn’s looks with the assistance of the women who worked at the Studios and throw in some of the behind-the-scenes footage from that.
If there is one film any fan of Disney should see, it’s Disney’s own documentary, Waking Sleeping Beauty. Comprised of tons of archival and personal footage, the documentary takes a no-holds-barred look at the state of The Walt Disney Company in the early 1980s when Hollywood big shots Michael Eisner, Jeffrey Katzenberg and all showed up in the parking lot with their fancy cars and turned the company and the animation department on its ear, taking it from the lows of The Black Cauldron to the highs of a series of animated films that helped to define a generation.

Richard and Robert Sherman are virtually synonymous with Disney. The prolific brother songwriting team was heavily favored by Walt Disney. So much so that he placed them under a studio contract which is unheard of when it comes to songwriters. You hear throughout classic Disney films and throughout Disney theme parks around the world. What you may not have heard is their own story, a pair of brothers whose personal relationship was strained for most of their lives to the point where they became completely estranged from each other.
